Re: New guy asks "How's the winter "Undercover/Underpad" fold up?
- I also have a Hennesey Explorer with the undercover. When I stow it
I just leave it all rigged and cram the hammock, undercover foam and
nylon, ropes, guy lines, everything into the stuff sack. Unfishing
all the guy lines, disassembling everything, and then putting it all
back together next time is just too much for me. I guess I'm just
lazy. But it seems to work ok that way for me. I don't think the
original stuff sack that held the hammock and rain fly was big
enough to do this way. I think I've got a bigger one now. The rain
fly and some plastic stakes, bungies, and the tree saver straps go
together in the original stuff sack.
One thing I've learned the hard way is to use small bungies to
attach my guy lines to the stakes, rocks or tree limbs. When I (or
one of my packgoats) stumbles across a guy line in the dark, the
bungies keep the lines and hammock or rainfly nylon from getting
tore up. If you're not a clumsy oaf like me, tho, you may not need
to do this.
